opposition. now kpix 5 reporter john ramos says that northern californians are trying to kill the tunnel project, too. >> it's been painfully clear for the last 30 years that the existing system is not working well for fish or for people. >> reporter: currently, so much water is being sucked from the south end of the delta that in places, water actually flows in a reverse direction. it's harming endanger fish and preventing a natural cleansing action. the state says besides provide earthquake protection, the tunnels would allow a freshwater flow to help equalize the system. >> we will gain flexibility. we will be able to pull from either the north or the south, depending on where we can do the least environmental harm when we're drawing water. >> reporter: it's estimated the 35-mile-long tunnels will cost $16 billion to build and would be paid for by the receivers of the water, mainly the
6:01 pm
metropolitan water district of southern california and west san joaquin valley farmers to ensure the safety of the system and the state saying they will get no additional water from the delta. >> you can sure think of it as an insurance policy just to ensure that the supply you're getting now you can continue to get. >> reporter: but the people who live here don't buy that. they say if the metropolitan water district and the west side farmers are going to put up billions of dollars to build this thing, they are going to expect something in return. they're going to want more water. a group called restore the delta doesn't believe this is about making the supply more secure. >> it's profit-motivated. it's the ability to sell water. >> reporter: she believes metropolitan is considering issuing bonds to fund $8 billion of the cost so they would become too big to fail in the eyes of the state. >> if they pay for this, are they going to expect more water than they're getting now? >> they are going to expect more water and they are going to leverage their debt position
6:02 pm
with the government to give them the water. >> reporter: no matter how many environmental hurdles the state clears, if the water districts don't agree to pay for it the project will fail. many wonder what that kind of political leverage will mean for the delta. john ramos, kpix 5. >> even if the southern california water districts come up with the money, the state and federal governments will have to issue a number of permits before construction begins. now, coming up tomorrow at 6:00, john is going to take us to the small town of hood on the sacramento river, where the state wants to put the intake pipes for those tunnels and where locals worry those tunnels would destroy not just the delta but their way of life. new at 6:00, marijuana laws are starting to take shape in the north bay. kpix 5's emily turner is inside a dispensary in sonoma where people can now apply for commercial marijuana licenses. emily. >> reporter: veronica, it's a whole new world for the marijuana industry. starting today, in sonoma
6:03 pm
county, you can get a permit and that brings businesses like these within the law in sonoma county. these people actually look forward to paperwork. but for karen, today's forms have been a long time coming. >> we are excited to step into this whole regulated permitted world and actually be able to come out of the closet. >> reporter: her medical marijuana farm is the first business in sonoma county to apply for a permit, something that didn't exist for the industry until today. the county opened the office early for the first day of applications and has a sense of humor handing outnumbers for those in line starting with "420". >> he is awesome. >> reporter: it took about 18 months to create the permitting process and the laws supporting it. when it's all said and done, the tax revenue is expected to bring in anywhere from 2.6 to $2.9 million a year for the

county. >> that revenue will also be used to cover a lot of costs that the county will incur when it comes to enforcement, the initial part of staffing for the permitting process that can't be covered by application fees. >> reporter: today's permit also plays a part on the state level. once businesses get one here, they are eligible for state licensure when adult recreational use becomes legal in california in january. >> it's been a really welcoming process, and i would recommend that people get into it now because 2018 is coming up. >> reporter: i talked to the county this afternoon and asked them what their head count was on people applying for permits. they have had about 2 dozen or more people applying for permits just today on the first day. reporting live in sonoma county, emily turner, kpix 5. we have new information about a story we first told but last week. several airport screeners in the bay area accused of taking bribes to help drug smugglers. today a federal judge sentenced

another screener to prison. jessica scott pleaded guilty to allowing 13 pounds of cocaine to pass through her x-ray machine at sfo. she didn't take any bribes. but she did it because her then husband asked her to. this man, joseph scott you see him here running away from our cameras outside the federal courthouse in san francisco last week after pleading guilty to receiving a bribe as a public official, he was a supervisor screener at sfo. in all, seven screeners at sfo and oakland have been charged with turning a blind eye to drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. in court today, attorneys said there were more screeners involved who have not been arrested. bart had high hopes for the millbrae station when it first opened. but it turns out ridership is half of what it was expected to be. kpix 5's devin fehely is there now to tell us what went wrong. devin. >> reporter: well, this bart station opened before uber and before lyft, before technology companies were chartering their
6:06 pm
own buses. it also opened with an expectation that thousands of caltrain riders would hop off here and hop on to bart trains and that simply never happened. bart's board of directors was banking on the millbrae station being a vibrant busy transportation hub connecting riders with caltrain, sfo and the city. but a decade and a half after it first opened there's little dispute that the millbrae station is under used and often ignored falling far short of expectations. >> the busiest it ever is during commute hours and even that isn't as busy as most other stations are. >> reporter: the millbrae station averageses about 70,000 -- about 7,000 riders a day half of the projection. even though millbrae is the closest station to the airport, you're forced to backtrack to san bruno to catch a train that connects to sfo. >> the millbrae bart station is weird because it starts mid- peninsula. >> airports make sense. you have a lot of people like me who are not driving.
6:07 pm
it might help to have something right at the airport. >> reporter: but bart says millbrae is an important link in the transit system. >> generally speaking, our calculus is good when it comes to prejudicing ridership -- when it comes to projecting ridership like this. we didn't meet the projection this time. >> reporter: they are not sure if there's anything they can do to increase ridership in millbrae and wonder if the big expensive empty station was a good use of taxpayer dollars. >> bart has suffered from misspending in a lot of ways. i'm not sure how you go about getting more use of the station because it's enormous and a parking structure that's rarely full. >> reporter: bart tried to put a positive spin on those dismal ridership numbers compared to the original estimate. they say that there's still a great need and desire for transit and they say the capacity is here. in millbrae, devin fehely, kpix 5. $1,000 a pop that's the
